The T.R.E.A.T.Y. Total Immersion School
T.R.E.A.T.Y. Total Immersion School
The T.R.E.A.T.Y. Total Immersion School is an innovative solution to a centuries old challenge:

 How to educate our children with joy, respect and wonder.

 How to instill in children self-respect and ignite the spark of life long learning.

It is based on the successes achieved by the Total Immersion School experience of the Maori Peoples in New Zealand.

This unique program created a revolutionary approach to teaching by focusing on culturally centered private schools for preschool through university for the indigenous population. Total Immersion into the root culture's language, art, dance, music, science and oral tradition grounded the children in their identity and rich heritage.

The self-esteem engendered through these private schools empowered the Maori children to succeed at the top levels of academia and athletics after they entered public schools. The successes were so remarkable the government of New Zealand adopted the concept throughout the country and established over 180 Total Immersion Schools.
